HI Everybody,

It *MUST* have been asked earlier but somehow I am not able to find out an answer for this.

1. What is SOAP(Simple Object Access Protocol) all about?

2. Where can I use this?

3. Does this has anything to do with HTTP replacement?

4. Why I need SOAP?

Can somebody help me to find the above questions answers? Perhaps if you can provide me some reference link to start with.

With BEst Regards,
Arun

1. What is SOAP(Simple Object Access Protocol) all about?A whatis definition

2. Where can I use this?
Well, at least in every application where exchanging XML is an issue

3. Does this has anything to do with HTTP replacement?
No. SOAP uses HTTP, it does not replace it

4. Why I need SOAP?
I've no idea if you need it. But SOAP is a standard, so if you don't want to reinvent the wheel, use it
